Seeing Stars

Having finished piecing my magnus opus of a hexagon quilt top, I decided that I must get started straight away on another English paper pieced quilt. Well, what would I do with my hands otherwise?

This one is going to be scrappy, but in a limited range of colours. I am going with hot pink, orange and yellow.

Lately, I haven’t done much sewing in public, because my quilt had gotten too big to cart around. So this time I am going with smaller parts to make up the whole. I have made three stars so far.

The first, in the waiting room at the swimming pool, while Waif was at swimming club:


The second, on the bus on the way to meet up with an old friend:


The third, on the bus on the way home from meeting up with said old friend:


I flipping love public transport 🙂

To keep me motivated making this quilt, I have decided to join in with the Monday Morning Star Count over at Life Under Quilts.

    I agree – when you finish one epp project, you have to start another! These fabrics are so colorful and cheery.

    Hi: I’m also working on stars. Your colour choices are gorgeous.

  6. Wonderful. My new hand made quilt will be Suffolk puffs, I tried Cathdral Windows but there was too much ironing involved. Good luck with all those sharp points.
